So… KICK…. Why are you on this website? Why do you follow a man who lives in unrepentant sin? A sin that Jesus mentioned… of course I’m talking about Glenn Beck…. a divorced man who remarried. Jesus called that ADULTERY. As far as I can tell, you are all hypocrites… calling out homosexuals, but ignoring (even embracing) adulterers.
I John 1:9: "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."
Kick's views are not the same as most Christians. We tend to forget that bloggers/commentors are usually on one extreme or the other. Too many Christians use the Ten Commandments to judge or to belittle others, this is why Christ said to follow His two:
Love the Lord your God with all of your Heart and love everyone as you love yourself.
Realize that people that show hate towards others, show hate unto themselves. Christ does not want us to judge, he wants us to love.
Jam you are wrong a lot.
Mr. Beck is not unrepentant. Have you ever heard him talk about it?
There is room for divorce in the bible. go read it.
And there is room for repentence.He admits he was very messed up in his past, he repented and turned away from that life.
But he is still married, correct? Isn't that the definition of 'living in sin'? continuing in and acting on a relationship that is defined as sinful by the bible?
That argument would only be valid if Beck was still marrying and divorcing and endorsing the idea that infidelity is "Christian".

If you actually knew anything about this case, you would know that the couple had used this bakery before…. had bought a wedding cake from this bakery before… AND had a good experience using this bakery before. The bakery had no problem selling them a wedding cake for the remarriage of a divorcee (the mother of one of them), which IS a SIN specifically mentioned by Jesus. Yet, here we are, on this website, created by AN UNREPENTANT SINNER WHO CONTINUES TO LIVE A LIFE OF PERPETUAL SIN… and yes, I’m talking about Glenn Beck.

I’m sorry… I still don’t understand… how is processing LEGAL paperwork against your religious convictions?? Does that mean the DMV worker can turn people away from their window and force them back into that endless line if they feel the person in front of them is somehow against their “religious convictions”?
SHHH! Don't give them any ideas! Can't you just see some "good, Bible-believing Christian" at the DMV refusing to give a license to a Muslim or a Sikh?
Driving is not a sin...

So keep your heterosexuality out of MY face… it’s all over the place and it’s disgusting. I don’t care what you do in your bedroom, but keep it out of the public sphere… I don’t want to see a man and a woman holding hands… I don’t want to see them kissing… keep it to yourselves… stop forcing it on the rest of us.

The commandments Jesus gave are 1) Love God with all your heart, soul, and mind, and 2) Love your neighbor as yourself.

There is NOTHING this guy can say that will convince me that God did not create me exactly as He wanted me to be. If the torture I endured during “ex-gay therapy” didn’t turn me straight, nothing short of God’s intervention will… and I’ve come to accept that God does not want me to be straight, but to spread His message as a gay man.

@tbeachhead — “abomination” in the Bible actually has a closer meaning to “taboo”. For instance, in Genesis 43 it is called an “abomination” for the Egyptians to share a meal with the Hebrews. Now, obviously, there is nothing sinful about anyone eating a meal with someone of a different culture… but it is called an “abomination” for the Egyptians to do so in Genesis. AND it is the same Hebrew word that is used in the Leviticus verses.
 June 17, 2015 at 7:45pm
Amen. I would also add another verse… Galatians 3:28 — There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Nobody is ASKING him to perform a marriage ceremony between ANY two people he disagrees with… THAT IS his Constitutional right. Quite honestly, these doomsday statements about having to be FORCED to participate in any marriage they do not support just makes them look foolish.
Yes. Just like no one would be forced to bake a cake for a gay marriage.
If same sex marriage is a "right", why wouldn't pastors of churches be forced to marry gays? If follows the natural progression of "rights".
Let me give you an example. A restaurant owner cannot "refuse service" to a black person because they are black. He MUST serve them because discrimination on the basis of race is ILLEGAL.
So, if "sexual orientation" is protected from discrimination, like race is, why wouldn't a preacher be forced to "serve" a gay couple? The restaurant owner cannot "refuse service" because a person is black, on what grounds would a pastor have in "refusing service" to a person because the person is gay?
It's a logical argument. If "sexual orientation" becomes a federally protected class, that means that no one can deny their services to those people based on the person's "sexual orientation". Pastors would be forced to "serve" gays, or be sued for discrimination.

In fact… the father of the computer — Alan Turing — was a gay man… so I guess he needs to stop using a computer all together as well.

Since both Facebook and Twitter support gay rights… maybe Mr Graham needs to find a different outlet to spread his message… Otherwise he is calling for others to do what he himself is not willing to do.

@MSSoldier — did you actually READ the story you linked?? That baker did NOT refuse to bake a cake… they refused offensive words. And the buyer wasn’t asking for a Bible quote… they were paraphrasing the Bible.
[-1] April 30, 2015 at 3:33pm
Where the cake is used is immaterial…. If someone asks for a cake that says “Congratulations John” the baker should make it… just because it’s going to be used at a Klan rally for an outgoing Grand Wizard, for example, is meaningless. As long as any words or images cannot be construed as offensive, the baker should make the cake… and “Congratulations John” is not is anyway offensive to anyone.
 April 30, 2015 at 3:23pm
@MSSoldier — the courts, again and again, have said you CAN refuse offensive words and images, you CANNOT refuse the basic service (selling a cake). THAT is the difference.

HummingBird — Every person sins, whether they want to acknowledge they sin or not. YOU have sinned today. I have also sinned today, I don’t deny it. You can say you are going to refuse to engage in sinful behavior all you want, but the truth is you DO engage in sinful behavior each and every day of your life. It is through Christ that I am washed clean of my sins, and nothing you, nor anyone else, says or does can change that.

The Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act of 1862, signed by President Lincoln, bans marriage to more than one spouse at a time. This provides legal precedence for denying polygamous marriage recognition by the state

@pa_native — Yes… for 200+ years women were the property of men. A man went to a woman’s father and bought her for a price (called a dowry) to become his wife and mother of his children. The “Historical” definition of marriage HAS changed.

@Bytheppl4theppl — Jesus often ate meals with thieves and prostitutes… it DOES say that in the Bible… and He was often rebuked for doing so by the religious leaders of the time. If you want to be “separate from the world” then don’t set up a business IN the world.
April 28, 2015 at 5:40pm
The difference with “no shirt, no shoes, no service” is that it is applied equally to ALL people. ANYONE who enters not wearing shoes, regardless of race, gender, age, etc, is being refused service. I would hope the business owner would allow someone who lost their legs to enter without shoes on though.
